David Smith: Origins + Innovations at Hauser & Wirth

Dedicated to an in-depth examination of David Smith, ‘Origins + Innovations’ brings together the artist’s early paintings, drawings, and sculptures, alongside seminal later works that re-imagine the possibilities of abstraction in three dimensions. This presentation focuses upon the origins of a renowned artistic innovator, highlighting Smith’s exploration and embrace of diverse sources that inspired a radically new language for sculpture. Shown not as a linear narrative, but as a rich and dynamic whole, the exhibition offers surprising juxtapositions that shed new light on Smith’s lasting artistic legacy.
